FMS339 Showered with Love

Happy Saturday, peeps!  I have a bridal shower to go to today, and I am sharing the card that I made for my niece, the future bride!  It uses the pretty FMS sketch from Jen B for this week:

The invitation featured a lovely pink and blue floral, and I found these sweet papers in my stash, so I thought she would like this:

These French-inspired papers from Julie Nutting for Photoplay are adorable!  They work so well with the My Favorite Things Homespun Gingham! 

I just won this pretty little "love" die from Recollections, so I used it with some Pink Pirouette cardstock and added two little flowers from Jar of Love, decorated with a little butterfly from the DSP to pop on top:

The final addition was a little stitched scallop to finish off the left edge!  Love it!  Hope you have a great weekend!  

Another snapping turtle traversed our yard, back to the creek that runs behind our house!  It may have been the same one we saw last week, after she laid her eggs; I am not a turtle whisperer, so I won't be getting too close!!  The grass was so long and wet, you can see her trail, coming up from the swamp!

Here's how close she was to our house....she did veer off to the right to continue on through the yard!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

This is so pretty LeAnne! I’m sure your niece will love it too. Enjoy the shower! Those turtles look huge - not sure I’d be getting too close either!!

As regard the current girl, just forget about her.

This card turned out lovely due to your efforts in placement and color combos. It's so spring like.

Your card is so perfect for a shower. Perfect take on the sketch and your cuts are seamless. I have a really difficult time getting pieces to fit together. Beautiful work. Have fun.

Oh, so pretty! Perfect for a bridal shower. The tiny butterfly on the flowers is just that finishing detail that makes it so special.

Beautiful papers! Such a pretty card! And it is a wonder those turtles get anywhere they go so slow!
